This project is about network analysis and comparison. Nowadays, networks are objects present almost everywhere around us influencing our lives. The Internet and WWW are changing the way we think and learn. Our very physical existence is based on various biological nets. The development of communication networks is one of the best indicators of countries ’ development. In this environment, graph theory has made great progress. There appeared different needs of graph comparison and classification to better understand the structures sustaining our existence. We first present the issue from a theoretical viewpoint and afterwords we also describe several very practical applications- chemical structures, image recognition, voice timbre matching, etc. We also present an original approach concerning the analysis of social networks in the Middle Ages based on historical documents we have in a region of South Western France
